Incoming Rolex Sea-Dweller 116600, so I thought!

I bought a Rolex 116600 with papers, described as excellent condition, on eBay this past week at a great price.

It was listed for $14,000+, and with my best offer, I got it for $12,800.

Everything went smoothly with the transaction, and the watch was shipped right away from Japan.

Yesterday afternoon, I got a call from the eBay Authenticator in Ohio, which informed me that the watch I bought had a bent bezel and would not click on a particular spot. It was not declared in the listing.

I was given the option to return the watch or keep it. I opted to return the watch since Iím not sure what else the seller did not disclose.

If I keep the watch, I have no idea how much it would cost to fix it.

I was so excited to finally get the Rolex 116600 and add it to my collection, but I was disappointed with the news.

I guess I need to look out for another copy in the coming months.

Attached is the picture that the eBay authenticator sent me.

Kudos to them for catching the flaw in the watch.

Could you kindly share if you have a similar experience buying on eBay with an authentication guarantee?

Did I make the right decision?
